Overheating Target toaster recalled over fire/electric shock fears

Target has issued a nationwide recall on a kitchen toaster sold at the popular department store this year.

The 4 Slice Toaster, model TART1704 with keycode 60024374, has been pulled from sale because it overheats due to an “internal component failure”.

Target warned customers that there is a risk of fire or electric shock if this occurs.


The recalled toaster was sold at Target Australia Stores including Target Country from May 2017 to July 2017.

Anyone who has purchased the toaster has been told to immediately stop using it and to return it to a Target or Target Country store for a full refund as soon as possible.
